Dubinsky missed three games while Fedotenko missed one. Both reported feeling good after practice and will be in the lineup against the Predators as long as there are no setbacks between practice and gametime.
Henrik Lundqvist will start in net for the Rangers. He'll be opposed by backup Anders Lindback, who gets the start with the Predators playing the second half of a back-to-back.
Lindback won't have the luxury of Ryan Suter on the blue line, as the defenseman is out with an upper-body injury. Rookie Craig Smith, who missed the last two games while feeling under the weather, will check back into the lineup.
This team has been a real treat to say you've been the head coach of them. I'm extremely proud of this group ... after the disappointment of (the Game 6 loss) is digested, it's always a lot easier as a coach when your team has emptied its tank, and that team emptied its tank for me for three months.
